Our thoughts...

Sexy ~ Uninhibited ~ Tender

In preparation for Beautiful Beloved coming out earlier this month, I decided to listen to Beautiful Stranger (again!) which is narrated by Grace Grant and Jonathan Cole.  I have read all books in this series (multiple times), and I have go back and forth on who is my favorite Beautiful couple.  What I love about Max and Sara is their relationship began with a sexual escape in a night club and it grew into a relationship that neither of them saw coming. Sara was coming out a bad relationship and was looking for some wild and uninhibited, and she found that with Max. I loved the direction Christina Lauren took Max and Sara’s relationship because as a reader, we got to live vicariously through Max and Sara. (I may never look at the New York Public Library the same again!)

 I felt Grace Grant and Jonathan Cole took this story to a whole new level with their narration.  Their narration really brought the characters to life; especially have a male and female narrator reading each POV.  (You would not think it is a big deal, but it is!)  Jonathan did a wonderful job capturing the essence of Max with his accent and inflections.  Grace also did a wonderful job recreating what I had envisioned as Sara with her tone and inflections.    Below are two samples that I feel will convince you to download the audio book of Beautiful Stranger.
